A study of interviewers and interviewees
by Development Dimensions International Inc.
and Monster.com
reveals the secret to a great interview…
mutual respect. 

The number one complaint (77%) from hiring managers
was about job candidates being late for interviews,
being poorly dressed or unkempt. 
The number one complaint (68%) from candidates
was about hiring managers acting like
they had no time to meet with them. 

Two contract gigs ago,
I cooled my heels in a hallway for an hour. 
When the CEO finally saw me,
I didn’t receive a hint of an apology. 
Did I end up working there? 
After an initial refusal, yes,
but at more than my usual fees. 

There is a cost to lack of respect.
